Ethicist, do you need a (paid) summer intern?

I've been dropping the ball on my weekly Randy Cohen bashing and/or responding, so I'm glad Lindsay Beyerstein is (unbeknownst to her) filling in for me. Just to throw out my own example for why Randy's semantic point is clearly wrong, if I was the only player of some musical instrument made from wine glasses, an accordion tube, and a taser, I would also be the best player of said instrument. I recognize that this is somewhat conclusory, but I don't see how it's arguable.
